Enjoy an interactive and informative tour of Collected. Ritualled by a knowledgeable Museum educator. Collected. Ritual explores the performative and process-oriented aspects of making art and examines ritual as an act of special and sometimes mythical significance. The works in this exhibition were chosen for the innovative ways in which the artists engaged with ritual—including through studio art-making and artistic practices that use symbolic actions. The tour will have something for everyone: adults, families and kids of all ages are welcome!
